Founded in 2015, the Sustainability Investment Leadership Council (SILC) works with all players in the investment ecosystem, including corporations, investors, accounting firms and law firms, to integrate sustainability as part of companies' overall growth strategies. We spark innovation by discussing ideas that align economic opportunities and environmental, social and governance stewardship to benefit companies and their shareholders and stakeholders.

SILC fosters insights into how investors, accountants, and attorneys can incorporate sustainability practices that align economic opportunity with sustainable policies. SILC’s vision is to educate, encourage, and expand the understanding of sustainability and the impact it has on profitability based on policy, measurability, and standards.
